When I think of Fall I think of boots, scarves, and hot cocoa! I think of fallen leaves and turkeys in the oven, baked goods and mashed potatoes! I thought I’d combine a couple of my fall favorites and add hot cocoa mix to a basic white cake mix with a couple of drops of mint extract for some delicious cupcakes! Let me introduce to you our Minty Hot Cocoa Cupcakes.
